Cost Control to a New Level

Taking Compliance & Cost Control to a New Level

BADER UKRAINE transforms their Software Inventory and Management

BADER UKRAINE was challenged to establish control over the company’s use and licensing of software applications and to create a tighter system of governance. Outdated software versions and changes in vendor rules had resulted in confusion and lack of software license compliance. To simplify software management and optimize costs, SoftwareONE Ukraine was selected to provide extensive knowledge in Software Inventory and Management (SAM). The result is a new platform that provides BADER UKRAINE with the transparency, flexibility, and compliance controls to acquire and manage software at the best possible price, improving security, and enhancing IT resource efficiencies.

This enabled BADER UKRAINE to invest in other IT projects and to concentrate on their core business to satisfy their customers with highly innovative leather products for automotive seat covers.
